The Parisian Woman
Midtown W
Ambitious, Entertaining, Indulgent, Relevant, Slow

See it if you're in for a show that will show a quick dc-in-the-life-of episode. Also, to see some Hollywood actors try out their acting chops

Don't see it if you mind political opinions hammered in, and then hammered a bit more for good measure

The Box Show
Gramercy
Ambitious, Clever, Quirky, Entertaining, Hit-or-miss

See it if you're intrigued by the notion of transforming a very limited set space into a variety of wonderfully humorous settings

Don't see it if honestly it's a matter of taste. I found about half of the vignettes fantastic. And the other half meh at best. The good ones do shine tho

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Clever, Delightful, Great singing, Great staging

See it if you want a fun well-known musical with good singing/acting/staging

Don't see it if you're looking for something with a great deal of character development and depth. The story is clever but predictable

95
Absorbing, Clever, Funny, Great acting, Great singing

See it if a show with complex realistic flawed characters who struggle between what they want, what they have and who they are.

Don't see it if I really don't know. I guess it lacks over the top romantic flair, or a story of valiant heroics. So not for you if you're looking for that.

Charm
West Village
Delightful, Entertaining, Cliched, Quirky, Relevant

See it if you enjoy a teacher-students relationship story arc set around LGBTQ youth in an urban environment

Don't see it if abrupt change in tones and slightly cliched themes annoys you

Funny, Cute, Cliched

See it if you're a sucker for Discovery channel-esque features and imagine it's about alcohol

Don't see it if you're expecting serious and superbly theatrical

A Parallelogram
Midtown W
Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Intense

See it if you like sci-fi, character development, and suspense

Don't see it if you're looking for something light-hearted and uplifting

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Cute, Cliched, Great singing

See it if you're looking for a fun musical version of a story about a woman breaking away from an abusive relationship

Don't see it if complex characters or evolving story line

Sonder
Greenwich V
Endearing, Delightful, Sweet

See it if you're looking for a very sweet (borderline saccharine) love story. Very short too. Great for a first date or so.

Don't see it if overly sappy romance annoys you. Or exploring only the positive aspects of a relationship seems too unrealistic

85
Absorbing, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Slow, Resonant

See it if you want to see a humorous approach at the struggles of divorce

Don't see it if the idea of 4 people in a room talking for an hour and half bores you

85
Clever, Unexpected, Entertaining, All over the place, Quirky

See it if looking for a fun, interesting musical with a bunch of quirky set pieces.

Don't see it if you're expecting a faithful adaptation of the movie. Or Bill Murray's style of humor

Indecent
Midtown W
Absorbing, Entertaining, Funny, Masterful, Intense

See it if you're in for a strong, but entertaining performance on the pitfalls and horrors of censorship

Don't see it if you get nosebleed seats and don't speak yiddish. The subtitles will be hidden from you

1984 (Broadway)
Midtown W
Clever, Ambitious, Great staging, Disappointing, Literally painful

See it if you liked the book and want to see an interesting albeit confusing adaptation

Don't see it if you get headaches or migraines easily. Like for real, there's a strobe light and fog machine warning, but it doesn't prepare you for it.

Great acting, Absorbing, Intense, Thought-provoking, Profound

See it if you're in for a serious play about the fates and consequences of emotionally driven people and actions. Acting is superb; story absorbin

Don't see it if you're looking for something light-hearted. Or a evolving narrative. You're in for a serious character and relationship study

55
Ambitious, Cliched, Entertaining, Funny, Campy

See it if you're looking for an over-the-top production of the original Dracula story, that depicts location and set changes well

Don't see it if tonal changes annoy you. There are some great genuine performances and some great campy performances. It's the mix that might put you off

Hamilton (NYC)

Absorbing, Ambitious, Clever, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if you like musicals, historical narratives, character development, hip-hop, wide representation of people and perspectives

Mary Jane
East Village
Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Great acting

See it if you want to see a well-acted show about a good person in hard times. And how healthcare still fails severely at times

Don't see it if topics of congenital diseases and the struggles of those who deal with it bothers you

Sleep No More
Chelsea
Absorbing, Quirky, Intense, Confusing, Physically intense

See it if you're up for an interesting, but confusing, telling of macbeth and want to see a wonderfully detailed and crafted set

Don't see it if you're not very physically fit. There are 5 floor, no elevators, and at points the actors are literally running around.

60
Absorbing, Clever, Disappointing, Audience-based

See it if you go with a group of people and enjoy spending time with

Don't see it if you get a random group of people and aren't getting along with them

Marvin's Room
Midtown W
Absorbing, Real, Thought-provoking, Abstract

See it if are interested in fully fleshed out realistically flawed and broken characters

Don't see it if looking for a simple or entertaining show. It lightheartedly covers some serious topics

Ambitious, Confusing, Overrated, Great staging

See it if you want a fun and entertaining spectacle

Don't see it if you want a well-thought out and developing plot and character arc

60
Absorbing, Confusing, Esoteric

See it if you're in the mood for a very confusing ride, and involved ride

Don't see it if unclear direction and lack of resolution bother you

80
Great staging, Entertaining, Faithful, Great acting, Great singing

See it if you're a fan of the original and want to see a performance that's a straight adaptation. Set design is on point!

Don't see it if you're looking for the movie version of the story.

Absorbing, Delightful, Clever, Cliched, Rushed

See it if you like harry potter, have read the books, seen the movies and are up for something new

Don't see it if the idea of Harry Potter fanfic theater bores you

75
The End of Longing
West Village
Clever, Funny, Cliched, Unoriginal, Entertaining

See it if are up for a sitcom-ish story about serious issues

Don't see it if you're looking for anything extremely witty or charming. The jokes are a little belabored and the story simple
